I’ve visited Sudeley Castle three times since moving to England just over a year ago, but I’d never seen the castle from afar until this past weekend. These photos were taken from the “pull in” beside the road to Charlton Abbots just outside of Winchcombe. I didn’t even know such a view was available, so I was pleasantly surprised (to say the least…I jumped out of the car so fast in order to take pictures before the light changed that I stepped into mud before changing into my hiking shoes! But one must suffer for one’s art, right? Well, if not art, then at least for a picture I’m pleased with.)
In this close-up overview (contradiction?) of the castle, I love all the little details such as the sheep in the field, the cars, and the white tent over the coffee shop’s extra seating. Aren’t zoom lenses great?
If you would like to take a look at a previous post about my first visit to Sudeley Castle, you can see pictures of the castle, church, and gardens from a much closer range. Otherwise, please enjoy this last view of the castle nestled in the Cotswold countryside.
